The Awesome Potential of Prayer-Care-Share

Mission America Coalition Annual Meeting 2007

Kansas City, Mo

October 9, 2007 – October 11, 2007

Bishop Larry Jackson, Charlotte, North Carolina


A vehicle to use to advance our cities.

Simple, but powerful – if we use it.

Lets join Jesus in what He has already done.

He’s already prayed, cared, shared… He’s the forerunner…

The most important thing we can do is make the city happen.

The church is in the city for the city’s sake. Not the city for the church’s sake.

Jesus didn’t give us any churches. He will build HIS church.

When we start acting like its Jesus’ church – He will do more in the city than we can imagine.

Isaiah 62 – for the city.

Meditate on what the city will look like when God comes.

Don’t pray against the evil in the city – pray for the glory of God to come and invade our city.

You’ve been placed where you are because God chose to put you there.

You’re not going to work to get paid. You’re going to work to influence a generation!

We don’t have to analyze this! It’s a plan of God. We just have to do it!!

Why are we in the community – so we can be a light in the community!!!

If you really want them to come, we will establish a plan to go get them.

Do you know everyone in your neighborhood? That’s YOUR neighborhood. God placed you there to help win the community. Your assignment is where you are planted! To take care of every need you have in your community. Rock this nation!! Get you mind off of YOU!! Why do I even have to say this!!! You know its true. You know the only problem is we’re not doing it!!!

Psalm 37:25 - 25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. 26 He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.

Matthew 6

My kids eat out of the fridge without asking me!

My kids believe that because it’s the Father’s they can have it.

God provided it for me!

25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

We don’t just want a revival – because we can have a revival and it will just stay in the church!

We want an awakening!! That will transform the city! God wants your city transformed.

Seek God and His righteousness for your city.

When you see things get worse, its working!

When you catch a fish… does is lay sideways and just slide into your hand?

It fights, but you don’t give up… you start reeling it in!

We are fisher’s of men! You know this.

What would you do if you cannot fail? God has your back.

Jesus said “it is finished!”
